Addressing a press conference, convener and head of the Department of Physics and Electronics Dr Ghulam Rabbani said the use of microcontrollers is rapidly increasing in every field, including communication, control system, instrumentation, auto industry, medical instruments etc.
He said the workshop aims at providing training facility for teachers and students in the field of microcontrollers. "Basically, the workshop is designed to cover architecture, programming, interfacing and engineering applications. It is planned in such a way that teachers, students and professional gain hands-on practice, along with theory," he added.
Prof S C Mehrotra said it would help participants take on the challenges of the real world and boost their confidence in working on the latest hardware and software platforms.
Secretary of the organising committee Dr B M Gawali (faculty, Computer Science and Information Technology, Bamu) said the study of microcontrollers has been introduced in the syllabus of BE, B Sc (Electronics) and M Sc (Physics and Electronics) not only at Bamu, but also other universities across India.
